    Arvilla brighten the work place at Champion Contractors with her big smile and great sense of humor. She was a friend immediately and I enjoyed our lunch time chats and laughs together. I never saw her have a bad day! She made a lasting impression on me.

    You are a dear friend and I spent many evenings at your house talking, visiting, and relaxing. I always enjoyed looking at your Raggedy Ann collection and listening to your endless stories. You made my life a happier place. I regret not spending more time with you in recent years, however, I thought of you often. I will miss you. Rest in peace and tell Jack that I love and miss him too.

    When Jenniffer and Joey introduced us quickly we became friends/family..
    I am grateful for our many conversations
    And thankful for the laughs. Two weddings, one kick ass 80th birthday party, which by the way, you have more friends than I do! Even Spent a beautiful Christmas with the kids..
    It was such a gift for you allowing me to spend the last Days with you.
    Forever your friend
